DLDWomen 2012: New Rules, New Values

Executive Director Edit Schlaffer speaks at international women's conference on SAVE's work

12. July 2012

On July 12th, 2012, Dr. Edit Schlaffer, Founder and Executive Director of Women Without Borders, took the stage at DLDWomen in Munich, Germany, on the theme of "New Rules, New Values." In her first session Dr. Schlaffer sat down to interview Farah Pandith, the first US Special Representative to Muslim Communities, on the pressing topic of Women in Islam.

Dr. Schlaffer was later featured on the culminating panel of the conference: "Pat and her Posse - A Gang of Activists", and individually addressed the 500 person live audience, and larger Internet livestream audience on SAVE's work with Mothers Opposing Violent Extremism (Mothers MOVE!), highlighting the diverse voices of women on the ground from Israel to Palestine, and from Britain to Pakistan. 'Pat and her Posse' was moderated by Pat Mitchell, a Women Without Borders board member, and the President and CEO of the Paley Center for Media in NYC.

DLDWomen 2012 was co-chaired Steffi Czerny, Dr. Maria Furtwangler, Vivane Reding (EU Commissioner for Justice, Fundamental Rights and Citizenship), Pat Mitchell, Ursula von der Leyen (German Federal Minister), and Arianna Huffington (President and Editor-in-Chief of the Huffington Post). Now in its 3rd year, the conference examined how women's empowerment is being driven by new economics, globalization, technology and politics. The two-day event featured discussions, case studies and lectures and brought together an extraordinary group of over 50 international high profile speakers and more than 500 opinion-forming participants, both women and men from business, media, technology, society, health, education, politics, and science.
